Recap: We Will Rock You At Tennessee Performing Arts Center

The music of Queen exploded into Nashville’s Tennessee Performing Arts Center Tuesday night, trembling the speakers, vibrating the walls, and forcing the audience into a standing, dancing ovation before the last song even played its first note.  Multi-award winning and witnessed by fifteen million & counting worldwide, We Will Rock You will be playing in Nashville through Sunday, November 17, 2013.

This show is all about legend,” says the production’s creator, Ben Elton. “We take the legend of Queen and create our own fantastical story. . .”

Featuring the music of legendary rock band, Queen, We Will Rock You takes place on futuristic iPlanet, once known as planet Earth.  iPlanet is controlled by a mind manipulating, powerful corporation, breeding mindless, manufactured citizens and music. All instruments are banned.  All music, except for that generated by the corporation’s computers, is illegal.  Alas, a resistance of rebel Bohemians has arisen and awaits a leader to bring the power of rock music back to the people.

Brian Justin Crum as the dreamer, Galileo, has the rock star act down, with the vocal pipes to back it up.     Performing songs such as I Want to Break Free, We Will Rock You, and We Are The Champions with seemingly honest passion.  The entire cast seemed to truly love performing for the cheering Nashville audience, including the talented and impressive ensemble of triple threat punk rock Bohemians.

Queen’s original members and musical supervisors to the show, Brian May and Roger Taylor are active in casting performers and musicians for every production.

Ruby Lewis as the headstrong and sassy, Scaramouche, fills Andrew Jackson Hall with powerhouse vocals and beautiful renditions of songs such as Somebody to Love and the duet Who Wants To Live Forever.

Erica Peck as Bohemian rock rebel, Oz, steals the show with her soulful, belting version of the touching classic, No-One But You.

“People definitely come out of the theatre feeling that in a strange way they now know us, Queen, and our struggle, our journey,” says Brian May.
